Just want to share about a good deed

First of all, one of my sisters just passed away, yesterday was her funeral, another sister stayed with my sister, Ethel, who has a house yet. She is 91, and the other sister is 90.  Well, during the week before the funeral, the toilet overflowed, water all over the basement, she needed to quickly get someone, heard of this man, got him to come, cost $1000.00, for all that work but it had to be done, he sucked up 90 gallons of water, cleaned the carpets, came again with fans to dry the basement, and he was so nice to her, she was going to pay him and he said no, he was glad to do this for a 91 year old woman living alone, just "Merry Christmas!"  Wow!  

By the way, I lost two sisters within five months - in their nineties, but I was very close to them.  It's hard to believe that I only have two left now. We would all get together for birthdays.  They are happier now in Eternity. We miss them though.
